I won't have Dexter in his costume until later tonight, but I've been in my costume all day long.
Don is a long time Star Trek fan. He digs the original series, with TNG coming in second. His favourite Trek movie is the Wrath of Khan, which I must admit, is pretty good. If you want a synopsis, watch this Robot Chicken reprisal and you'll basically get the idea.
Years ago when he was in Vegas, Don picked up this Uhura dress at the Hilton's Star Trek Experience. He also got some science officer uniforms for our good friends and a Captain Kirk one for himself. Yes, it's ultimately dorky. I do like the dress, however, even though I couldn't be classified as a Trekkie.
It's made out of the same cotton used for sweat pants so it's like wearing a sweat pant dress. Yes, I know I just wrote the words "sweat," "pant," and "dress" in succession.
Last year I wore this on the bus while I was going downtown to meet people.
This year I'm wearing it with Pashley.
She's pretty much well my version of the Star Ship Enterprise.
Together we explore strange new worlds.
Seek out new life and civilizations.
And boldly go where few stylish North American woman have gone before.
Have a fun and safe Halloween! I'll post some Dexter-in-costume pictures tomorrow.
